WAC 415-104-715

Miscellaneous conditions and defects.

The following miscellaneous conditions and defects are causes for rejection of membership:
(1) Allergic manifestations:
(a) Allergic rhinitis (hay fever), see WAC 415-104-570(2);
(b) Asthma, see WAC 415-104-670 (2)(c);
(c) Allergic dermatoses, see WAC 415-104-690;
(d) Visceral, abdominal, and cerebral allergy, if severe or not responsive to treatment;
(2) Any acute pathological condition, including acute communicable diseases, until recovery has occurred without sequelae;
(3) Any deformity which is markedly unsightly or which impairs general functional ability to such an extent as to prevent satisfactory performance of duty;
(4) Chronic metallic poisoning especially beryllium, manganese, and mercury. Undesirable residuals from lead, arsenic, or silver poisoning make the examinee medically unacceptable;
(5) Cold injury, residuals, of (example: frostbite, chilblain, immersion foot, or trench foot) such as deep seated acne, paresthesia, hyperhidrosis, easily traumatized skin, cyanosis, amputation of any digit or ankylosis;
(6) Positive tests for syphilis with negative TPI test unless there is a documented history of adequately treated lues or any of the several conditions which are known to give a false-positive S.T.S. (vaccinia, infectious hepatitis, immunizations, a typical pneumonia, etc.) or unless there has been a reversal to a negative S.T.S. during an appropriate follow-up period (three to six months);
(7) Filariasis; trypanosomiasis; amebiasis; schistosomiasis; (hookworm) associated with anemia, malnutrition, etc., if more than mild, and other similar worm or animal parasitic infestations, including the carrier states thereof;
(8) Heat pyrexia (heatstroke, sunstroke, etc.): Documented evidence of predisposition (includes disorders of sweat mechanism and previous serious episode), recurrent episodes requiring medical attention, or residual injury resulting therefrom (especially cardiac, cerebral, hepatic, and renal);
(9) Industrial solvent and other chemical intoxication, chronic including carbon bisulfide, tricholorethylene, carbon tetrachloride, and methyl cellosolve;
(10) Mycotic infection of internal organs;
(11) Myositis or fibrositis severe, chronic;
(12) Residuals of tropical fevers and various parasitic or protozoal infestations which in the opinion of the medical examiner preclude the satisfactory performance of duty.
